THE SUMMIT CONTINUES TO DEFINE HIGH PERFORMANCE AND VERSATILITY. DEDICATED SNOWKITE RIDERS WHO ARE LOOKING FOR HIGH SPEED MOUNTAIN CLIMBING OR BLASTING THROUGH THE POWDER NEED A FAST TURNING KITE, THE SUMMIT IS THE CHOICE. THIS FOURTH VERSION HAS DIRECTLY BENEFITED FROM OUR R1 V2 RACE DEVELOPMENT KNOWLEDGE, ALLOWING US TO IMPROVE PERFORMANCE, HANDLING AND STABILITY.
The Summit V4 is perfect for progressive riders – allowing the adventurous to push their boundaries in the snowy backcountry. The Summit V4 has so much potential due to its amazing power generation in light winds but also big de-power in strong winds. Combine that with fast direct handling and you have the ultimate open cell foil Snowkite.
Each aspect of the V4 has been optimised using the latest development techniques to produce a kite that pushes the limit of design and performance. With our new software and Ozone’s years of experience we have put together a unique combination of aspect ratio, cell width, profile and sail tension.
The Summit V4 now boasts the same internal load distribution technology as the R1 V2. The new diagonal ribs and internal straps connect to each other creating a structural frame, which reduces load going into the upper and lower surfaces. This new technology brings further gains in stability, depower and handling to the Summit V4.
The airfoil section has also been recalculated and smoothed to improve the kites speed and feeling. New flexible lightweight plastic battens are precisely positioned at each Leading Edge cell opening – the battens enhance structure of the openings, this means quicker and easier inflation, and stability in gusty mountainous terrain.
The Summit V4 is available as a Kite Only option that comes with the lightweight Kompressor Bag, or Kite Complete with the Contact-Snow Control System and technical mountain Backpack. We recommend adding the Kompressor Bag to the kite complete option to keep your kite packed and secured as small as possible.
REVOLUTIONARY INTERNAL RE-RIDE RELEASE SYSTEM
The Internal Re-Ride Release System is the result of two years research and development by our design team and pro riders, with the aim to create the safest system on the market. The goal was to have a release system that once activated the kite can easily be re-launched without having to untangle or clear any lines. Our unique Re-Ride Release System stalls the kite with an internal line – the kite de-powers instantly without tangling and will sit on the ground ready to re-launch when you’re ready again.
Another big advantage of our Internal Re-Ride Release System is the land and secure option. We have added the Secure Loop in the line approx 2m away from the rider. To land the kite simply pull the 5th line through the chicken loop until you reach the Secure Loop. The kite will stall and fall to the ground without any pull. Use the Secure Loop in the 5th line to keep the kite on the ground – it can either be hooked onto a carabineer on your harness or over the bar horn. This makes landing and packing your kite safe and easy even in high winds.
We thoroughly enjoyed developing and testing the Internal Re-Ride Release System. It has made mountain climbing and packing on top so much more enjoyable, safe, easy and quick for the user.
- The Internal Re-Ride Release System cannot be upgraded to older kites as it includes lines that are running inside your kite.
- For reverse launch and light wind landing we have kept the Brake Stall Handle between the back leader lines.
